Following up on the announcement of Design for Equity in November, Metropolis Magazine recently published a recap of the 1-½ day event. Sponsored by the Bruner Foundation and the Loeb Fellowship, three Boston-based organizations–Enterprise Community Partners, Codman Square Neighborhood Development Corporation and the Boston Redevelopment Authority–coordinated the event. Participants included 125 professionals from the fields of design, community development, arts, urban planning, philanthropy, advocacy, and government. The article’s author, Anne-Marie Lubenau, director of the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence, summed up the experience:
The interactive forum provided a platform to consider the increasing economic and social disparity in our cities and explore how design can contribute to greater equity and opportunity for everyone. We were excited to explore the topic of equity in Boston, as the issue is a growing concern and is central to newly elected mayor Martin Walsh’s agenda.
